Also in November, the kids and I headed to Camp Cloverbud. Usually kids can't go to 4-H overnight camp until they're 8. And, it's for a week so it's really overwhelming for new campers and their parents. So I pitched an idea to our 4-H agent to do a parent/kid overnight camp to where they do summer camp. That way the 5-7 year olds could go and see what it's like, mom and dad can feel more comfortable with it, and hopefully we recruit more summer campers.
We went from Saturday noon to Sunday noon in November. It was COLD. Especially for our little ones. So, we ended up staying in the nice adult cabin rather than the unheated cabins the summer campers stay in. But, we had a great time and did all the normal camp stuff - crafts, campfire, food. We're already planning for next year and making it a two night event so we have all day Saturday at the camp. It was a hit and a lot of fun, but very exhausting!
